Currently there is an M1 network outage all over the the island. Rectification is underway. Please don't call their overwhelmed Hotline. (Oh wait, you can't. Muahahahaha!)
They had better repair it soon. Teenagers who cannot SMS are threatening to rampage.
Some teens are now using a strong synaptic link to the Hive Mind to communicate.
It apparently is not affecting all M1 users. Just those on the M1 Sibei Suay package. It looks like my wife and I were on the Sibei Heng package. Both our lines seem to be working.
I may have slept through the worst of the outage this morning, to be honest. I was up late last night gamin— er, reading a book.
The outage concerns me greatly. Somewhere out there, there are M1 users who cannot receive my important tweets about things like "I think I should take a dump now."
I think M1 should seriously consider setting up a twitter account for official updates about network status and other customer service updates. It beats having irate customers restarting their mobile phones 10 times thinking it is due to their phone and not the network.
It also beats having irate customers flooding your call centre with queries and complaints.
I have to thank the 29,000 twitter followers of mine for being such hardcore retweeters and spreading the message of the network downtime. I love my readers, man.
But I had to turn off my iPhone Notifications to even write this post or do anything else, because of the alerts from the retweets.
I shall take this out for a spin these few weeks and maybe video my bicycle commute to work and other stuff, to see how good it is.
I can shoot up to 1080p 30fps on this camera (127º wide-angle in 1080p mode), and the attachments allow me to mount the camera in many ways.
This is me trying it on my head with just the head strap.
No matter how I mount it, I still look dorky. But that is not the point. What I want to know is, can this video camera take the rigours of riding and still churn out decent photographs and videos? Not that I am doing any extreme sports, unless you count riding on Singapore roads an extreme sport.
Once every five years, the elections roll around and make me the busiest person on the planet.
Being the Grand Central of elections humor is not a job I take lightly. My wife becomes an Elections Widow as I spend hours at the coffee shop listening to old men gripe and complain and attending rallies to see if politicians will say something stupid (they do not disappoint).
So on Polling Day, at 9:30 p.m., when the results were to be announced, I was happy to spend the long night gathered with 30 of my friends at an elections-friendly shop, to catch the announcements on TV.
We had booze, soft drinks and a big-screen TV. And I provided the necessary side commentary while we watched the drama unfold.
Watching the results with me were several thousand Twitter followers who followed my tweets, both the snarky stuff and the winners/losers info that I got wind of even before it was announced live on air.
Yes, I sent out a tweet about the much awaited Aljunied GRC results (WP beats PAP 55-45 percent) long before it was officially announced. (cont'd)
